There and Back Again: Kris Peterson’s Journey Across Market Movers

13 Feb

Kris Peterson’s career path is definitely one of the most interesting ones to see, let alone hear about. Her discussion of the difference between Amazon, Starbucks and Microsoft – three global icons – was a fascinating experience. It was a nice reassurance that, should I or anyone else holding a journalism degree decide to not follow the path of journalism, there are many other options out there that do not involve going back to school for a new degree.

    I think Kris had the most interesting story as well. She really as worked for so many companies and was really helpful in explaining the differences between each one.

    Your point about Kris not being in the journalism field but holding excellent jobs proves the notion of how journalistic skills are applicable in many jobs. All of these corporations require employees with excellent communication, inherent curiosity, storytelling and editing – all of which Kris exemplified!
